Thou and Emma Ruth Rundle have released “The Valley,” another new song from their upcoming collaborative album May Our Chambers Be Full.
Rundle spins a gothic tale of resilience in the face of shame on the majestic, nine-minute slow-burner. “But if you have given up in the valley / And if you have given all to its wake / Just another endless night fall around me / Just another fucked up thing I can’t save,” she sings.
“The Valley” is the epic closing track of May Our Chambers Be Full, which also includes the song “Ancestral Recall.” The record will be Rundle’s first full-length since her 2018 album On Dark Horses. For Thou, it follows their two cover collections released earlier this year: A Primer of Holy Words and Blessings of the Highest Order.
May Our Chambers Be Full is out October 30. Listen to “The Valley” now:
